"These tracks are the reflection of these truncated after-days during which they were made. Just a way to use these weird hours usually wasted, not in the logical culprit of a post orgy profit, but according to a repairing pleasure. Everyone need a different psychiatrist: some choose a benevolence against couch, others a dustbin, as for me I never smell myself as well as the eyes and the ears trapped in my home studio!"
"I give a great place to improvisation and randomness in my music. I always try to triturate the sounds, to scramble the melodies to create an interesting but surprising harmony. The melodies are very important but they arrive always a little by chance, like tempting sound accidents. I also like to act on the technical aspect of instruments, virtual or real, and to add effects to release more emotion, more sensitivity to the melodies and the rhythms."
« Many details still remain in their memory: this tapestry, all those Chinese things bathed in a filtered light and its large dark curtains leaving them from the world, almost as much as this hardly constrained nudity and this uncontrolled heat. For once disengaged from the elementary fears which are so often disguised, just to damage, they remembered the right to realize that it is in its spaces, the most intimate ones, that one could find rest; just naturally.» JD
There is something about making music in the old way: you have to find poeple to do it with. So you have to make compromises. - You have to play this one with a Dire Strait like sound! - No way! - Do it at drums, Muppets style ! - Ah ah... very funny... - Piss off bastard! - Ok then, I quit! It's very rare when it goes differently. But now, with those ultra micro tablets, the things are much more simple: you're in front of your computer and you play the electro. - Isn't nice?! - Yeah hum... not... Topic: Minimal techno
But why did you established such a system? It makes it possible to determine the quantity of temporal reduction, in the form of percentage of the original length. Thus the device slave calculates his own frequency in accordance with the messages of the temporal clock... This concept could seem muddled, but once you've understood his operation, it proves rather simple. The alcohol abuse is dangerous for health. Topic: Minimal
Cheval de Troie - "Travel in an ideal attic. This track has the taste of a Wednesday afternoon..." Biactol - "What can I add? The piece could have been called adolescent complexes." Premiers flocons - "The first time that I saw snow, as a child. Unforgettable. An ode with all the first times." Bergen - "I had this week of exile in Norway with everywhere this gray and sinister snow. But this morning, the sun appeared on the top of a landscape of fairy tale,... ( 2 reviews ) Topic: Trip Hop
Under any circumstances be both spectator & auditor, even in the disco. Disco pop, minimalist disco, disco pompiÃ¨re but disco, always. Rather writing a novel than avoiding fatal disco. Mel odies & rhythms just like playing air guitar in your bedroom. The computer knows your stuff & gets it right. It'll give you satisfaction in no time and will make a rock star by software proxy. We always imitate what we'd like to hear which is the same, only different. All westerns are identical... Topics: Electro disco, Deep techno
In bed with my Pleyel Â Â« I've learned classical piano for about 10 years but was never very good at it, probably far too lazy. At 13/14 years old, my piano lessons quite often ended up on the sofa where IÂd feel like sucked into surreal erotic dreams, my nose still sniffing the ether bottle. The big Pleyel would then start twisting taking weird shapes, and the tic-tac of the metronome would literally hit my brain into complete delirium. Â» 66 Paranoia - Â« one day me and my little...

A diving into the "deep downtown", thus could one qualify those 5 laab's tracks. Urban and night, the pieces mark the chapters of a journey within the night; intimist, recluse, sexy, romantic and sink. His universe evokes a crossing in a fantasmatic city, where suddenly one becomes hero of his own life. Missed rendez-vous, momentary meetings, crossing of the shady districts, industrial suburbs... The musical course perspires the bars lit with neons and the wet bitumen of rain. This...
He comes the second Francky Ride's release for Valiza Tools. As usual, the artist goes into a deep elektro techno in order to evacuate the most personnal end sensitive side of himself. "Elektra" is just as heavy and tortured as he can do. "Titan" gives some air, but from space so... And Finally "Excuses" is here to finish an old story as he said. Topics: delete, Deepo techno
From techno dub to abstract hiphop, it's always the energy that does arise. The Hammond organ, the saturated sounds or even calypso sounds are here to make raw power and tension cross emotion, humour and opening. Ride Francky Ride! ; -) Topic: Electro, Breakbeat
